Vernon Davis is upset with his lack of targets
The San Francisco 49ers are celebrating their victory over the Seattle Seahawks…well most of them.
Tight end Vernon Davis is upset in regards to his lack of involvement in the team’s offense.
Is there something going on?
“That’s up to the offensive coordinator,” Davis responded when asked what needs to happen for him to get the football. “I don’t know what to do. I run my routes hard to get open but there’s nothing there. We’ll see, we’ll see.”
“Some of the routes I usually run, they are taking them away,” Davis said. “The (routes) up the sideline, it’s not there. Nothing’s there. When I run my corner routes, the cornerback is dropping to the corner. They are just taking stuff away, some of my explosive routes and stuff.”
It sounds as if the root of Davis’ frustration is with the defenses are perhaps shutting him down. However, after looking at the game film there was no less than four scenarios that Davis would have been considered wide open.
Quarterback Alex Smith has reverted back to the instable shell of himself over the past two contests.
The 49ers running game set up what success the 49ers did find in the air.
When it was time for Smith to takeover, he made numerous decisions that would be considered poor.
The biggest of which was not looking at his primary weapon.
